What's the cost?

Just thinking about all the little expenses that add up.  Then two days ago I figured this:

Driving to daughters track meet 
in our gas guzzling Suburban:  $6.00

Brought knox blox, cut up apples 
and red peppers for her:           $4.00

Hearing her exclaim when she saw me:  
"Mom, so glad you're here, 
I want to show you off to my friends!": PRICELESS!!!

Never thought I'd hear that and it made me feel like a MILLION BUCKS!

Joy suggested I share this on my blog.  Life is GOOD

PS - I totally rocked my run today and now I think I have the running for at least 3 minutes down!

WOW that feeling, I can feel it in your words. I am so happy for you Margene. I also was so happy you got to met up with Joy. That was amazing too.
Keep up the great work Margene. You will rock out your first 5K run.
I have slacked off so much this week in everything. I have got to get back into this. Tomorrow is a new day, it will happen.
Take care and have a blessed evening.
